10 bad habits that harm you!

1. Showering with hot water on a daily basis is both bad for your hair and skin! Avoid as much as you can.
2. Not drinking enough water. I was a victim of this bad habit but I overcame it by setting an alarm clock in my phone so I am reminded to drink water.
3. Sugar ! This is my biggest problem and I am glad to announce that I have replaced my cravings with fruits! My favorite ones being ; watermelon , strawberries !
4. Not walking enough – I try to walk as much as I can and you should too.
5. Not using protection against sun ; sunblock and hats
6. Having red meat , it’s bad for your heart!
7. Spicing up your food – the blander the food, the healthier it is !
8. Oily stuff , a big no no ! Have it once a month and wait for the next month if you have cravings.
9. Snacking on cookies , chip etc – always snack on healthy things like fruits or salads.
10. Don’t buy juices , buy fruits and make your own juice – that way you also save money ! It’s healthier too!

WHY?

Do you ever get angry on your genes? I don’t seem to have inherited any good qualities from either of my parent’s sides. I just seem to get all the negatives of their genes.
My dad and mom both had extremely weird chins. My mom has a double chin and it must have been passed down to me.
On my dad’s side, my aunts and my dad alike were never fat or overweight for that matter. But, all their fat is stored on the belly and upper arms. Same thing with me!
My dad was very fit, but I am not.
My mom on the other hand, has always had a good body for her age but my body shape seems to get worse everyday. Even if I exercise, look after my eating habits but my body keeps gaining weight.
My waist has gone from size 0 to size 3, which is the biggest failure of my life.

How I control my cravings

Just like every other teenager (not-so-fit) teenagers, I am always craving some junk food. Just yesterday, my brother was having pizza. I was tempted to have pizza. I almost had it but then I put it away and distracted myself ..
So today I will share with you my mantras of controlling cravings

* Know that bad food is bad for you. It will increase the amount of body fat in your body. It will  also make you gain weight. Bad food has the ability to give you disease as well!
* Whenever you want cookies, or bad food ..just look at the calories ..then calculate how many miles you’ve to run to burn that
*A moment on the lips, forever on the hips.
* distract yourself with books, or anything that won’t make you want to munch
* Drink water, or make yourself a smoothie..add some sugar but not too much
* Know why you want to be fit. I am not necessarily fat but I have fat in my body which can lead to an unwanted illness later on in my life. Hence, I workout.
* If you’re healthy, workout to be in shape.
